Dada Pop unveil a psychedelic hip-hop gem with 'Eucalyptus Trance'
With psychedelic hip-hop becoming the forefront of their sound over the last few years, US duo Noah Gold and Urban Ghost aka Dada Pop look to continue that trend with their euphoric new delight ‘Eucalyptus Trance’.
Following in the footsteps of Flying Lotus and Lapalux, ‘Eucalyptus Trance’ is a wonderfully warm and soaring affair. Their ability to mash genres together with such ease has given them a sound unlike anything else we have heard. Speaking about their new single, Noah Gold said, “The track is a sprint, starting off with what almost sounds like an 100m dash starter's pistol. Having lots of content in a small area of space is structurally meant to express the chaos of what youth culture is dealing with due to technological advancements like social media. The second half fast rap section provides a wider perspective of evolutionary history meant to expand our interior worlds into a larger and more graspable vantage. While producer Urban Ghost added, “The beat emphasizes the cramped nature of the song with fast driving percussion overlaid with a droning, huge bass that progresses slowly and steadily. The complex, interwoven nature of the drums informs the themes of the push and pull of history and human nature being overrun and caught up in the tectonic shifts of technology and information.”
